Infrared gas detector for hydrocarbon gases SearchPoint Optima Plus
The Honeywell SearchPoint Optima Plus is an infrared fixed hydrocarbon gas detector certified for use in explosive atmospheres (ATEX zone). Available for many combustible gases, this fixed detector differs from other infrared absorption devices by a very fast response time with a less than 4 seconds T90 for methane.
The Optima plus IR combustible gas detector is particularly suitable in applications likely to be affected by poisons or inhibitors harmful to catalytic beads but especially in processes with the permanent presence of explosive combustible gases, solvents or alcohols, even at low concentrations... Detailed description
The SearchPoint Optima Plus hydrocarbon gas detector
The Honeywell Searchpoint Optima Plus is a high performance fixed infrared hydrocarbon gas detector - ATEX certified - with a very large library of flammable combustible gases with nearly a 100 available calibration curves making it the most versatile infrared gas detector on the market.
A high performance infrared gas detector
The Searchpoint Optima Plus hydrocarbon gas detector uses an infrared double beam measurement technology with an ultra-fast response timecompared to conventional gas detectors with catalytic filament. It needs reduced routine maintenance and has a secure operation thanks to an integrated self-test.
Advanced algorithms for internal fault diagnosis and rejection of false alarms ensure optimum operational integrity. With its high-performance optical unit and its robust stainless steel housing, it is particularly suitable for the most demanding industrial applications.
The SearchPoint Optima Plus gas detector has the HART® communication protocol (Highway Addressable Remote Transducer) to access complete diagnosis, configuration or calibration information from a control room or through a HART® portable device
